 Big Smoke is Toronto’s specialised burger sensation and has recently opened its first site in Dubai. Big Smoke is located in the Meraas development on Al Wasl Road, a high profile lifestyle destination featuring a combination of restaurants and retail shops in one of the most traditional and wealthy areas of Dubai-Jumeirah. The franchisee Al-Samadi Retail, who have signed a 15-unit deal to develop Big Smoke Burger throughout the UAE, called Dubai the ‘Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) hub of tourism’.

Big Smoke specialises in making handcrafted burgers made fresh daily as well as offering traditional Canadian food. Burgers are grilled to order and made using high quality beef. They’re served with real Canadian cheeses and high end garnishes such as horseradish mayo and coriander-feta spread. It also makes its own signature homemade sauces to give the unique ‘Big Smoke’ taste, gourmet burger toppings and hand-cut fries and onion rings.

We’re proud to be working with Big Smoke in its first venture in the UAE by installing a bespoke HVAC system. The restaurant is fitted out with an Ecology unit to deal with three fundamental issues within the restaurant environment: smoke, grease and odour. The Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) and Ultra-Violet filtration work together. The ESP is designed to target the grease, smoke and other pollutants to ensure they are not released into the restaurant’s local environment. The UV then targets the small particles, remaining contaminants and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that can cause odours.

It has been a privilege to work closely with Big Smoke to open its first restaurant in Dubai by installing an effective and efficient kitchen extract system. Big Smoke is a great dining destination and since opening it has proved to be very popular. Watch out for more Big Smoke outlets opening in the UAE!
